Volvo has announced that all its 2015 models, available at dealers now, will come with Volvo On Call and Sensus Connect technology suites as standard, meaning much of the technology in the cards can be controlled from an app on your Windows Phone.
Volvo On Call provides Volvo owners with 24-hour roadside assistance, SOS emergency services with crash notification, and stolen vehicle tracking and when used in conjunction with the Volvo On Call smartphone app, owners can remotely keep tabs on things like fuel level or the lock status of their vehicle’s doors.
Volvo’s Sensus Connect uses 3G connectivity to bring streaming music, restaurant reviews and even WiFi to the vehicle’s cabin and also features Bluetooth connectivity and a text-to-speech text message feature.
Volvo has been keeping their Windows Phone app regularly updated, with the last update only being on the 22nd August, to add support for their plug-in hybrid.
If you are lucky enough to have a Volvo with telematics, or even if not and you just want to see the app in demonstration mode, find it in the Windows Phone Store here.
